The mainland portion of Tokyo lies northwest of Tokyo Bay and measures about 90 km east to west and 25 km north to south as its mentioned in Tokyo map. The average elevation in Tokyo is 40 m (131 ft 3 in). Chiba Prefecture borders Tokyo to the east, Yamanashi to the west, Kanagawa to the south, and Saitama to the north. Mainland Tokyo is further subdivided into the special wards (occupying the eastern half) and the Tama area (多摩地域) stretching westwards.
Tokyo has numerous outlying islands, which extend as far as 1850 km from central Tokyo as you can see in Tokyo map. Because of the islands distance from the administrative headquarters of the metropolitan government in Shinjuku, local offices administer them. The Iwo chain and the outlying islands of Tokyo have no permanent population, but host Japanese Self-Defense Forces personnel. Local populations are only found on Chichi-jima and Haha-jima. The islands of Tokyo form both the subprefecture of Ogasawara and the village of Ogasawara.
Tokyo is a major international finance center, houses the headquarters of several of the world largest investment banks and insurance companies, and serves as a hub for Japan transportation, publishing, and broadcasting industries as its shown in Tokyo map. During the centralized growth of Japan economy following World War II, many large firms moved their headquarters from cities such as Osaka (the historical commercial capital) to Tokyo, in an attempt to take advantage of better access to the government.

There is a loop line around central Tokyo called the Yamanote line as its mentioned in Tokyo downtown map. The neighbourhoods on this line (and neighbourhoods within the loop) are all considered downtown Tokyo. This makes Tokyo downtown massive: the loop is 34.5 kilometers (21.4 miles) around as on map.
A city centre or downtown is the “city commercial, cultural and often the historical, political and geographic heart” (source). However, a large city such as Tokyo is divided in many neighborhoods that became city centresor downtown in their own right. Historically, Edo Castle (now the Imperial Palace as its shown in Tokyo downtown map) is the centre of the city since the city became the centre of power early 17th century. This 115 hectares green zone stands out on a satellite image and still serves as the geographic core of Tokyo.
Tokyo is mainly made up of 23 special wards and a large chunk of outlying areas in the west as you can see in Tokyo downtown map. The core wards are Chiyoda, Chuo and Minato. While there is no official categorization, reports from the Tokyo Metropolitan government specify these three wards as the core area (example). One of these wards has its significance right in its name: Chuo means centre or downtown.
